I have a new pt with an allergy to eggs. On a couple of occasions, I noticed the kitchen at my LTC job served her food with eggs/egg products. On another occasion, she had to ask if there were eggs in a certain dessert. When I approached the dietary staff, they shrugged and said "I don't think so. It's probably okay." I pressed for a more definitive answer and found eggs were an ingredient in the dish. Can you say... Scary?!
What food allergy policies do you guys have in place? I'm trying to think of suggestions to present to my DON to change this risky behavior.
